2009 Pinot Gris

Vintage -
The 2009 vintage was a surprise package. It must have been the best and earliest vintage yet.  Good ripening over a long hot summer. 

Appearance -
Bright medium gold colour with a tinge of green hue in the rim.

Aroma -
Distinctive, ripe Williambon Cretian pear aromatics with hints of white peaches and spices.  

Palate -
Flavoursome, clean, fresh fruit flavours with just a hint of fruit sweetness.  Long juicy pear flavours abound.  Elegance and finesse show how this young Gris will develop.   

Cellaring -
Keep some in the cellar and see how the wine complexes with time.  Pinot Gris are renowned for being slow developers. And the '09 will continue to develop with age. 

Serving -
Best presented at 10 - 15 C for overall enjoyment

Food Accompaniments -
All sorts of game bird dishes, lighter glavoured fish, salads and chicken dishes.  With age this wine will handle pork dishes happily.  

Awards -

  • Bronze - 2016 New World Wine Awards.
